You're reading: Symonenko: Ukraine could lose coal industry in a few years

“Only Donetsk region alone produced about 100 million tonnes. To
appreciate the difference, it’s only necessary to know that today the
coal industry in Ukraine produces 80 million tonnes of rock per year. So
it’s not even coal, but rock,” the party’s press service quoted
Symonenko as saying on Friday.

Such a situation, in his opinion, was triggered by the start of the privatization of coalmines in Ukraine.

Symonenko said that only 10-15 mines in Ukraine are currently
profitable, and that the rest are unpromising in terms of industry. He
said that it meant that the last profitable mines would be sold for
almost nothing.
